There have been warnings that North Somerset may be amongst 20 council areas, nationally, that has yet to reach its Covid-19 peak.
Figures from the Office of National Statistics show that the number of deaths in Wiltshire, Bristol, BANES, across Gloucestershire and south Somerset peaked, generally, around mid-April and have decreased each week since then.
But the most recent figure (May 15) for deaths in North Somerset (24) is the highest so far.
The number of deaths in which Covid is mentioned on death certificates continues to be inconsistent, but the ONS statistics reflect that the pattern in the county is noticeably different.
Mum Eva has thanked hospital staff at South Bristol Community Hospital for helping her young son after he gashed his eyebrow.
She said staff did their utmost to put him at ease despite them having to wear PPE.

He even got a little elephant made out of a surgical glove to take home with him.
MPs from across the West have been tweeting their support to Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who has spent the night in intensive care with coronavirus.
Wells MP James Heappey said: "He is in the best possible hands and there is no better place for him to be as he battles against Covid-19.
"Kate and I are sending all our love and cares to Boris and Carrie. We hope that he'll make a quick recovery and that they'll be reunited as soon as possible."
Care workers across north Somerset are having to work without personal protective equipment due to supplies "drying up", a council has said.
North Somerset Council is appealing to schools, colleges and businesses to help "bridge the gap" until new stocks reach the South West at the beginning of April.
Councillor Mike Bell said: "We need basic items such as masks, disposable gloves, aprons and hand sanitiser.
"Please, if you have them stored away, and don't have an immediate care-related need, get in touch. You will help save lives."
